Here is Chapter 7! This is my first recording but I did read everything in the first post, ran it through Checker, edited, etc. Please let me know if there is anything I can do better.

Recording is 09:59.
Hello Tatiana
Your recording was just fine, and I will give you a PL OK as soon as you cut 2 seconds off the end. We're not to exceed 5 seconds and you have 7. Thanks.

Here is the reupload. Looks like I forgot how to count seconds at the end! This has the 2 seconds trimmed off.

PL notes for Section 9:

At the start, please reduce the silence to under one second (a half second would be ideal).

At :15 please insert the full name and author of the book

At 2:10, your sentence is missing "Having gone up Lake Champlain..."
3:35 across into the Illinois river
5:53 please add: "One"
13:37 July should be January
